talks about adoption in hollywood. It is almost like a new trend that the
celebrities are trying to set. Not saying it is a bad thing to adopt at
all, but just questioning if these celebrities are doing it just for fame
or if it is truly something that they feel is the right thing to do.

Her son that she had adopted in 2002 was from Cambodia and his name is Maddox. The daughter that she adopted in 2005, is named Zahara and she is from Ethiopia.
Another major hollywood star named Madonna has also adopted a child from Malawi. She adopted a boy from Malawi named David. He had been living in an orphanage because his widowed father could not take care of him.
